hey hey hey

How is everyone doing. Well here in mexico I have been pretty busy. Me and my companion have had the opportunity to baptize a young girl named Vanessa this past week. It was a really great baptisimal service. I don't know if I told you this but my companion is getting ready to finish his mission. He only lacks 2 Sundays and then he will be heading out to his house. It is so crazy how fast the time flies out here. Well enough about here in Mexico. How are things going for you all over there in Arizona? Is it starting to cool down? Well just like you mom I am way excited for conference this weekend. Make sure to invite everyone you can to listen to the words of the Prophets of God. How privleged we are to have this opportunity!!! Well I love you all so much and please let me know if I can do anything for you!!!

Hey, how are you doing. How is everything going? I'm doing good. Hey, I just looked at the blog. What is the truck that Jared was using to sandboard? I like it alot. What is it? Well I don't have that much time to write but I just wanted to let you know that I am doing good. Working hard and having a blast over here in mexico. Tomorrow is the 15 of September (its kinda like the 4 of July in the USA) President told us that we have to be in the house by 6 pm. It is kinda dangerous for the Americans at night so we will see how it goes. I Love you all so much. Tell Jared that I say hi and that I love him and miss him. I would love to talk to you more but I got to go right now. I LOVE YOU all so much and please let me know if you need anything. Oh Jared please learn all that you can while you are in seminary. It is sooooooo important!!! Oh mom I apologize for this but I need to take out a little money from my account. I know I don't have that much but please sell anything of mine to pay for my needs. This mission is more important than anything I own. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

Sept 7, 2009

hey hey hey,

Well just like you mom the weeks are flying by for me!!!! I really can't believe that we are in September now. Shoot Darn it is so crazy. Well this week has been a pretty good one for me and my companion. We baptized a girl named Eneyda that we have been working with for a long time. We wanted to baptize her about 3 weeks ago but she told us she just didn't have a testimony of this church. Well we invited her to read the Book of Mormon and pray sincerely. We pasted by her house a couple times but she told us didn't have time to read because of homework. We were kinda getting frustrated but finally one day we passed by and her countanence was completely different. She told us that she had been reading the Book of Mormon and praying. I can't even begin to express the joy that I receive when I hear that someone has received an answer that this is the true church of our savior Jesus Christ. She got baptized this past Saturday and Sunday received the gift of the Holy Ghost. This gospel is truely amazing.
Well changes have come again but only 3 Elders in our Zone have changes. I will be staying with my companion in the great city of Neza. I am really excited because we have quite a few baptisms coming up. Oh just a little information on our mission. This past Sunday we baptized 97 people, ordained 15, and completed 8 families. There are about 186 missionaries in our mission which comes out to about 93 companionships. This work truly is great and marvleous!!! Well I better get going but know that I love you all so much. Please let me know if you need anything.

con mucho amor

Letter from Mission Mom

Hi again Elders y Hermanas,

Can you believe that September is already here? Each month goes by so quickly, and we have so much to do. Make every day a great day, and work hard, with no regrets.

President and I really enjoyed attending the Mission President’s Seminar three weeks ago with Elder y Hermana Christofferson, Elder Walter Gonzalez, and our new Area Presidency and their wives. What a blessing it is to have such great leaders, in our church and right here in our area of Mexico.

Our son Ryan is loving his mission in Uruguay. He has already been a part of two baptisms. It has been very different for me to send out my youngest child on a mission. It has made me realize all over again how much I appreciate all the parents who have sent missionaries here to Misión México Este. I hope you will tell them how grateful I am for their love and support of each one of you.

President and I are looking forward to seeing you again soon, and hope you will make it a great month! Remember we pray for all of you EVERY day.

Con amor,Hna Bulloch

P.S. Keep up the great work with Companionship Language Study! I am so impressed with the great progress that so many of you have made!
